Hollywood is bracing for the criminal fallout from all the recent sexual assault allegations, and now RadarOnline.com has learned some of the offenders could face serious consequences.
In a statement, Los Angeles District Attorney Jackie Lacey said her staff is set for whatever happens next.
“In response to the widespread allegations of sexual abuse in the entertainment industry, I have established a task force of specially trained deputy district attorneys who are ready to evaluate these cases if any are referred to my office for criminal prosecution,” Lacey said.
“I have assigned the group of veteran sex crimes prosecutors to work together to ensure a uniformed approach to the legal review and possible prosecution of any case that meets both the legal and factual standards for criminal prosecution.”
So far, Lacey says her office has not received any cases for possible criminal charges, but as the accusations and victims lists grow, they could be coming any day now.
“We are in communication with the Los Angeles and Beverly Hills police departments.” Lacey said.
